Seriously, your fabric is awesome!  Where do you get it from?  I have the hardest time finding fabric I actually want to buy.  Great idea, those would make great gifts!

I spend way way way way too much time looking at fabric and deciding what to buy and changing my mind, its an endless cycle.  But here are a few of my favorite online shops:
http://superbuzzy.com (for cutesy japanese fabrics)
http://www.kitty-craft.com/
http://nuno-plus.com/
and these etsy sellers
luckykaerufabric.etsy.com
alittlegoodness.etsy.com

The birds and house fabrics were given to me, but I was told that they are quilts from urban outfitters, I think you can rummage the sale for curtains and what-not at decent prices.

hope that helps!

I would have never thought to use embroidery hoops!  Wow.  I sense a trip to the craft store in my immediate future...

Wow, I didn't know that people actually did this! When I was born my great-grandma made me a quilt and matching embroidery hoop decorations for the wall. She's trendier than I thought!

I love your fabrics too by the way  Smiley I think I recognize a couple of them but I can't think of where they're from...maybe jcarolinecreative.com? Someone just pointed me in the direction of her site and I LOVE it!

these are really great, what a wonderful (and probably cheap if you already have the hoops) way to decorate!

This is pretty awesome! I think I'll give it a try for my dorm next semster, if I can find fabrics that cool. Thanks for the idea!
